The pods are rather small and easy to miss. IIRC they'll be in the general area where the Indianapolis blew up. For me, it was kind of tucked into the broken planets debris field. I kinda stumbled into them. Not sure if they're always there, give it another look. Otherwise, not sure what else to try other than drop it and redo it.

Yours sounds bugged. When you get to the pool, you kill three or four more soldiers worshipping by the pools edge, then, IIRC you talk to a changeling in the pool who will tell you Lass is not a part of their link and hands him over to you to face justice. If The changeling isn't talking to you, then best bug report it. Unfortunately, aside from dropping the mission and redoing it, there's not always alot you can do.
In OB I hated having to redo a bugged mission from the beginning again. I tried beaming back up to the ship and then jumping back into the mission, but it would always just drop me at the same spot where I was bugged. I hear there's a timer. If you log out for 15-20 minutes and come back, you can restart the portion that bugged. Being the impatient type, I also found you can beam up to the ship and go to an adjacent system. Enter it and then leave again right away. no need to stay, just have whatever mission it offers pop up it's dialog on your screen, then dismiss it and leave. when you go back to your mission, you should be able to continue from the start of the ground portion.
Still sucks having to start the ground portion over again, but that's the last part and it beats doing the whole damn thing all over again. It worked in OB, give it a shot.
